    Hello everyone!!
    Today, we have an antique Victorian era bronze hare match stick holder. As you will see, in pic #4, there is a slot on the side of the little holder with a replaceable striker pad. It's rather small. The detail of the hare is remarkable. The match holder is 1" long and 1/2" wide. The entire piece measures 3 3/4" tall and the base is 2 3/4" in diameter. This piece is from the 1850's and during the Victorian era, thru the early 1900's, it was customary to keep a match stick holder in your home for visitors to light their cigar or pipe. Consider it the table lighter of yesteryear.

    Thanks to you all for stopping in for a look!!

    Scott

      He's a handsome little fella, the design looks to me like he popped out of a magician's box! Toothpick holder is a good guess. Love your creative hares Scott

      I just bought this exact same rabbit at an antique store over the weekend! I have been searching all over the web for information on him. Thank you for sharing!

      Hi adidomenico!
      He's a rare find for sure. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy this one. I have many match holders in my collection, but this one is my favorite and also the oldest I have in my collection.
